We recognize that your news feed is being saturated with music festival outfits – but we would be doing summer a massive injustice without honoring this popular warm-weather activity. Whether you’re camping over a long weekend or just stopping by for the night, two things remains constant: comfort and trendy! This linen shift dress from Loveriche nails it! The pattern is eye catching without too many bells and whistles getting in the way of your free range of motion for grass-stomping and hula-hooping. While its easy to think that summer music fests are a bralette and high-waisted shorts only-zone: we absolutely beg to differ. Shift dresses are perfect because they’re cool in the hot weather and take no time to toss on with your favorite pair of sneakers or sandals. 100% would recommend.

The floral shift dress is (or definitely should be!) a staple in every gals’ wardrobe. Its flirty and girly while still being adaptable to everyone’s personal style and flair. They can be dressed up with heels, or down with a denim jacket and sneakers. Its no secret the millions of wardrobe variations you can create with a floral dress and a little creativity. Feeling tired of your classic combos? Try different textures in the same color family. We love these velvet belt that can be tied in many different ways to suit the occasion. Adding some statement shoes, with some unexpected texture like faux fur or metal hardware, adds interest and changes up the entire vibe without my effort. Accessorizing is key for putting a new spin on your most beloved go-to pieces.

Summer Inspiration: piles of fashion magazines

There’s nothing like an anticipated summer trip to make me go magazine CRAZY. I have been known to go to Barnes & Noble and buy nearly one of every fashion mag on the shelf. Throw in a bridal magazine, a few home decors, maybe a music zine or two and (saved only for the boring confines of an airplane) People or US Weekly. It’s a fun way to pass the time – be it crammed into row 17C or lounging pool side.
